For the first time, Activision Blizzard has been named to Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list for 2015.
The survey conducted by Fortune found the company “ranked highly with its employees” which felt the atmosphere was friendly and place in which they could “be themselves.”
“We have always considered Activision Blizzard to be one of the greatest places to work,” said CEO Bobby Kotick in the press release. “To be recognized for it by others is gratifying and rewarding but being acknowledged as a great place to work by our own people means more to me than just about anything.
“They are the reason we are being recognized today.
“In our early days, we were selling the office furniture just to make payroll. Today, we’re one of the largest and most successful entertainment companies in the world – and that’s entirely due to the exceptionally talented, inspired, driven, and hard-working people at Activision Blizzard. I couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments.”
Fortune partners with Great Place to Work annually to conduct anonymous employee surveys.
